When I changed from a manufacturing job to an educational job I had a long interview. During that interview I was asked what my biggest fear was. I quickly replied riots. They were not expecting that answer. We actually had a pretty good conversation about riots, and their effects.

When I was a child riots were a thing. We’re they worse than they are now? I do not really know. Censorship. The difference between now and then, now people knockdown statues. Back then it was about stopping the war or the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. None the less, riots made no sense to me. Why burn buildings? Completely illogical, yet people do it.

some years ago I remember seeing riots in South Korea on TV. Students versus the police. They would fight in the streets. Yet the would leave the cars and the stores alone. I was impressed. If there was a need for a riot, that was the way to do it.

Black Lives Matter. It makes a certain amount of sense. Everyone can feel down, so they may need some encouragement. You do matter. Yet now be murdered for saying all lives matter. Ask the family of Jessica Doty Whitaker what they think of black Lives matter. What a happening now is not rioting. It is insurrection. Planned insurrection. BLM does not care about black people, it is comprised of mostly white people, who burn down black neighborhoods. As such they are no better than the KKK, in fact they probably share the same DNA.

Me, I go to work so I can buy things I like. It is called Capitalism. The rioters, as many others hate Capitalism. Not sure why. They say the want to move to Cuba, yet they never do. I do not understand. Burning things down does not give you the things that you want. Unless you enjoy hurting people. Then that is wrong.

I do not think you will find many Republicans rioting, or encouraging rioting. Riots are a liberal, or Democrat thing. They are shady about it, but it is their thing.

Bernell Tremmell would have agreed. However he was shot dead, in the head. Just another black life, that does not matter, according to the Democrats.

I have run out of verbiage, I am sad. Our society, it has gone bad.

Tucked Away

Tucked Away

For the news junkies that is the actual rock. Interestingly it, and the rocks around it look like they have a waterline. Perhaps the rocks were moved here from somewhere else. A lake someplace? Were they moved before or after the sale? I would find that story interesting. Yes I envision a time capsule, this is the Granite State. Editor, could you get me that story?

I had heard of Jeffery Epstein before he was arrested. I had assumed he was a two bit wanna be player in politics. I knew the right wing media said he was a big player, but who actually believed them. Nobody believes that crazy right wing stuff. When Jeffrey was arrested we found out that he had the biggest house in Manhattan, and the biggest house in New Mexico. A fleet of private jets, and two islands in the Caribbean. This guy was a major player. Mysterious too. Money and women, no real viable income. Wow.

He claimed to be an expert at playing the markets. That may have been true. Others said he was involved in human trafficking, something I know little about. Most likely a bit of both. Then there were suggestions of blackmail and espionage. Both well within the realm of possibilities. So where was the truth? He died. Most people don’t believe he killed himself. Way to many coincidences. He believed he could beat the system, that is what he did. Till he died. The deep state at work.

Jeffrey had a girlfriend or partner, Ghislaine Maxwell. It was said that she procured young ladies for Jeffrey and his rich and famous friends. Some of the ladies were very young, underage even. That is why Jeffrey was arrested, then died before any trial. Secrets were being kept. Tucked away.

Ghislaine disappeared. It was assumed that she went overseas, out of reach of the law. Most believed that the secrets would be kept, tucked away.

I wondered what happened to the young ladies. It was said that there were 500 of them. Was it true that some of them died. Did some become a success, or even famous. Allegedly hundreds of girls were involved. Yet we have very few stories. Allegedly they may have been used for honey pots in international intrigue, real James Bond stuff. Like in the movies, but in real life. I have to wonder what was manipulated, and what were the consequences. Then there were the stories of sordid depravity. What is the truth?

Yup, the answer was tucked away, just down the road. What!

Whoa. Reset. Ghislaine was just a couple of stop signs away. She wasn’t in a foreign land? I was shocked, if the stories were true I figured she would be living in Dubai. Or some other nice place. She is wanted in this country for some really serious charges. In addition her “friends” would most likely be out to get her to keep her from talking. She then chooses to be tucked away just down the road. Surprise.

Maybe the international intrigue is even more dangerous than the charges here. Maybe she was tucked away in a government safe house. There now is the possibility that some real secrets will be forthcoming. Exactly how does the “Deep State” work. Would that be to much to ask? Allegedly there are videos, one, two, hundreds. Who knows. Will just a few be selectively revealed, a couple of minor career adjustments for the greater good. Or will the whole sordid mess be exposed. I do not know.

Sometimes things are so near, yet so far away. I suspect we will never know. Yet the story has become more interesting.

Or will it all be simply be Tucked Away again? This brief is exposure simply an aberration. Ghislaine is off to New York, with no bail. Will she survive? Will she talk? She says she is innocent. Is it is funny, she was found hiding behind a rock?

Something funny about the old timers in this state. We say that rocks grow.

┬┐Me Smart?

I write about what people talk about, and race continues to be a topic. Till a few years ago I never talked about race, I was trained at an early age not to. To be honest I did not think about race very often. It was not something I paid attention to. Till recently. When people started calling me racist.

Sure, some people mentioned race, they were all what I would call smart liberal people. In fact they seemed fixated on race. Not smart people would only mentioned race when it was brought up by others. The effect of this was the smart liberal would control the conversation.

Me, I am average. Not smart, not dumb. So what does this mean? for me racism is statistical. Certain races have certain attributes, or so it is said. To know them all takes a certain amount of memory. Some people have better memory that others. A smart racist can make observational judgments by characteristic observations. They are then happy to share their views. Are they right? Not necessarily.

We are individuals, with many traits. I learned long ago to not be judgemental. I knew that there were many things that I did not understand. That did not keep me from being observational. Still, there may be misperceptions. For example I have known a professional for many years. He had a slight accent. I knew he was from somewhere else, and had thought he had come from India. Just recently I found out that he had come from Iran. Not that it matters, he is a good person.

So what I think I am saying is that I am not smart enough to be a racist. It is way to complicated. If I am to judge people, it is how they work. Even then, I may be wrong.

I work with students and doctors. If you have followed me this far you may find this interesting. This is my view, students come to learn, they are like an electron cloud orbiting the nuclei. The nuclei is composed of doctors and other professionals. Electron clouds are fuzzy. They have no real shape. Yet they become an element, a building block. part of a structure. That is what knowledge is.

Full Stop. Watch out!

It seems reasonable to assume at this point that all Democrats are racist. They are destroying our cities and making life worse for the poor. Their policies are biased on hate. They know it. Vote them out of power. Defund them. I no longer feel bad for them. They are wrong. Vote them all out. Please.

I just read what I wrote. That is quite the premise. Wow. Ok, pause and take a deep breath. I have to agree, yes my personal experiences confirm. Unaware, my friends from the left are gleeful in their hate. Historically the Democrat Party has been the Party of racist hate. Why would they be any different now?

Sure, I have been canceled. It is not a surprise, it is what they do. As I discovered long ago debate is not allowed. So here are my observations. Old Joe was in fifth place in the New Hampshire primary. Then the Party coalesced around Joe? Why? There was no debate, the rank and file were simply told to vote for Joe. They did. Washed up Joe, why did they pick him? Because he was white? Maybe the party thinks that the general populace would only vote for a white person. Did they forget that Obama was elected twice? What the heck maybe they are right. Here in my state the Republicans nominated a Black and a Hispanic. The white Democrats won. My state is not woke.

In other states they are knocking down statues by the dozens. Sure, most of the statues were confederate soldiers, erected by Democrats. These people are self loathing. The woke are burning and looting the neighborhoods of their constituency. In my view just another reason not to vote for them. I am sure that my view is not a solitary view. I suspect that there might be a whooping at the polls. Of course I may be wrong, the cancel culture is very strong. Personally I see them canceling themselves. I, as well as so many others are tired of talking about race.

Joe, oh come on man you ain’t black, or white. Your a deplorable, despicable crook.

Yes, I wanted to say that.

1619 & Capitalism

I have seen this date used to describe capitalism as racist. Not that I am excellent at history but 1619 rang no bells for me. Till now. 1619 is currently being used to suggest that capitalism is racist. The reason is a group of twenty or so Africans arrived in what is now Virginia. They may not have been the first Africans to arrive in the new world. They may have been indentured servants or maybe slaves. Not much is known about them. Yet to some, their existence condemns capitalism.

It goes something like like this. Capitalism requires property. Slaves are property. Capitalism requires slavery. Capitalism is therefore bad. Yup, something like that.

I think that 1619 is part of the larger Capitalism versus Socialism debate that is going on in politics now. Of course I do know the 1620 story. In 1620 a group of Europeans landed in the new world. They tried a form of self government that would now be called socialism. They tried communal ownership of property. It did not work so well. Three years later they changed to private ownership of separate properties. The results were somewhat better. Of course I may be over simplifying things.

I think the real conversation should be more about Commercialization and Unionism. Commercialization is the use of media to convince people to act in a certain way. I might call it propaganda. Unionism is a method of extracting personal gain by the coordinated actions of a group. Both are bad.

So you do not believe in capitalism? Why not move to Cuba? Even though people die to move out of Cuba, you say it is an idyllic place to live. That is commercialization. Don’t like that idea? Go on strike, and ultimately loose your job. I guess I have said enough, time to move on to another storey. Move On, that is an interesting culmination.

Have a nice day, really.
